Paul Miller on the burden of email:
Like an eskimo, with so many words for snow, I could talk endlessly about email, due to my deep-seated hatred for it. How people are irresponsibly placing cognitive loads on each other, how no email thread can support the weight of a serious decision, how Google Wave could’ve saved us all, how Sparrow was my inbox’s only hope and now Google is going to kill it and when I get back to the internet I’m going to have 20k emails that I’ll never read and then I’ll quit the internet again because it’s stupid.
